LIFE - Taught in parables

Psalm 78:1-2 | O my people, listen to my instructions. Open your ears to what I am saying, for I will speak to you in a parable. I will teach you hidden lessons from our past.

  1. Is Psalm in the Old Testament or New? [Check your Bible’s table of contents if you’re not sure]. 
  2. What major event marks the end of the Old Testament and start of the New? 
  3. This verse is foretelling that Jesus would teach in parables. A parable is a story about everyday things that teaches something about Heavenly or spiritual things. Which of Jesus’ parables are you familiar with? 

Matthew 13:34-35 | Jesus always used stories and illustrations like these when speaking to the crowds. In fact, he never spoke to them without using such parables. This fulfilled what God had spoken through the prophet: “I will speak to you in parables. I will explain things hidden since the creation of the world.”

4. For three years, Jesus spent a lot of time teaching. Thinking back to the parables you noted for question three, what are some spiritual or heavenly lessons Jesus taught during that time? 
5. Where can you find Jesus’ parables and teachings? [Jesus taught the people walking the Earth with Him then, but is still teaching us today!]
